The Hunting was shortlisted as one of the proposed venues to host the 2010 Ryder Cup and regular host to European Tour's Seniors Open. Measuring just over 7,000 yards, this mix of woodland and parkland golf course owes much to its ground staff who endeavour to make it one the most colourful rounds of golf in the British Isles. Although deemed a secondary golf course, the Priestman is held in equal esteem by regular visitors. A newer track that offers a fresh par 72 challenge with the Scottish mountains in the distance. Slaley is also home to great facilities including: a floodlit driving range, practice area, two putting greens and a luxurious clubhouse.
The Priestman is a slightly newer golf course and is generally thought to be of equal standard. It was superbly designed by PGA Chairman Neil Coles and weaves its way across 280 acres of the Western side of this beautiful estate sporting stunning views as far as the Cheviot Hills in Scotland.
